We (family of 4) stayed here for 3 nights in August.
We bought 3 day GVB passes from tourist information at Schipol and then took the 69 GVB Bus and it dropped us off about 1 minutes walk from the hotel.
The room was on the ground floor, very quiet and was spacious enough for the 4 of us. Breakfast was plentiful with lots of choice and should have something to please everyone.
It’s a 20 min tram ride into the centre, we took the 7 and 14 (Flevopark) into the city and the 7 and 14 (Slotmeer) back to the hotel (the hotel gave us the tram details etc when we checked in).
The inconvenience of the 20 min trip into the centre is mitigated by the lower price paid for the room, the hotel is in an Moroccan/Tunisian area, it’s not the prettiest of places but it’s certainly not run down and the locals were friendly. There are restaurants and a super market near by.
The staff were friendly and helpful and we would stay again.
